Update on Dengue Situation in Singapore
Dengue is endemic in Singapore and the battle against dengue hinges on effective mosquito control by all.
The public needs to continue taking steps to prevent mosquito breeding in their homes, particularly those living in areas where there is active dengue transmission. Suspected or confirmed cases should protect themselves and their household members from mosquito bites by using mosquito repellent, coils, mats, nets, and by wearing protective clothing. MOH has also reminded clinicians to be vigilant to look out for dengue cases and NEA has stepped up its efforts to combat the spread of the virus by sending officers to comb dengue ‘hotspots’ and eradicate potential mosquito breeding spots.
